Harvest 2022: the progress so far
On this week’s Tillage Edge podcast, John Pettit and Conor Kavanagh, both Teagasc tillage advisors, discuss the results so far from the south east and the south of the country.
The harvest so far has been a mixed affair with relatively poor winter barley yields across the country.
Conor says the poor winter barley yields are probably a combination of earlier drilling which increased the levels of BYDV and take all. Yields were very poor in crops that had high levels of BYDV.
Farmers in the south-east were affected by BYDV also but John pointed out that take all probably had a large effect on barley in a poor rotational. John added that yields, so far, in winter oats are close or above average.
